The transcriptional basis of chromosome pairing.

Abstract:

Pairing between homologous chromosomes is essential for successful meiosis; generally only paired homologs recombine and segregate correctly into haploid germ cells. Homologs also pair in some somatic cells (e.g. in diploid and polytene cells of Drosophila). How homologs find their partners is a mystery. First, I review some explanations of how they might do so; most involve base-pairing (i.e. DNA-DNA) interactions. Then I discuss the remarkable fact that chromosomes only pair when they are t...
